Community Grants

The City of San José has a single convenient point of entry for your organization to view and apply for active City of San José grant opportunities. Please pre-register and once your registration has been approved, you will be able to view and apply for City grants as they become available.

Knight Foundation

Knight Foundation invests in cities where the Knight brothers once owned newspapers, with the goal to foster informed and engaged communities. As San Jose faces tremendous population growth, Knight Foundation supports the urbanization of a traditionally sprawling city with a focus on Central San Jose.

Awesome Foundation

The San José chapter of the Awesome Foundation is part of a global community advancing the interest of awesome in the universe, up to $1000 at a time. An awesome project exists in the public realm, and fills people with wonder, awe, and inspiration. Awesome projects are supported through micro grants, usually given out monthly and these micro grants are given on a no-strings-attached basis to awardees.

Global Art Grants

This program funds highly interactive, community-driven works of art that prioritize community involvement in their development, execution and display. Burning Man funds art that is accessible to the public, civic in scope and prompts the viewer to act.
